MVG WaveStudio™, a Dedicated Software Suite to Optimize OTA Measurements of Wireless Devices

For many years, the wireless device sector has demanded a software solution to improve and optimize the user experience when performing OTA testing, data management and analysis.  MVG is pleased to present its latest software innovation to deliver faster and more flexible measurement, MVG WaveStudioTM.

MVG’s SAM software has been a very popular OTA measurement platform, with evolution over the last 10 years to address the changing standards. MVG WaveStudioTM, which supersedes SAM,  is a revolution in OTA measurement software, with major improvements to meet the needs of 21st century technology.

Flexible and Automatic OTA Measurement

MVG WaveStudioTM has many automated features, making it user-, time- and cost-friendly.  Through its automated test methodology, MVG WaveStudio takes full control of all equipment in the system once a testing session is underway.  It allows engineers to program tests to run in batches, or to repeat tests in a single step.

MVG WaveStudioTM is packaged as a 3 part software suite. A free pre-processing module allows users to prepare batches of tests prior to a measurement session. This can be done on any workstation/PC, enabling the meausurement-dedicated (control) PC to focus on tests. Then, there is the licensed software which allows for the comprehensive data acquisition of automated OTA measurements. It also comprises post-processing capabilities, and the possibility to generate reports per therequirements set forth by the standard bodies, such as CTIA & 3GPP.   The 3rd part is a free viewer which provides access to the measurement results via any PC. Results are easily recalled with practical filters,  and measurement plots are viewable in parallel windows for immediate comparisons.

The three parts can be used at different times and on different PCs- this is the flexibility brought forth by WaveStudio, and is a revolutionary change in the way OTA tests can be conducted. MVG WaveStudioTM is designed to comply with CTIA/3GPP’s OTA requirements.  It delivers improved measurement capability, and facilitates and shortens the time to complete the testing required for CTIA/3GPP certification.  

With MVG multi-probe technology and WaveStudio OTA automation software, approved and certifiable by CTIA/3GPP, tests can be performed quickly and effectively, optimizing test lab operations, increasing test through-put, and ultimately gaining overall time to market of mobile devices. MVG WaveStudioTM adds value to any exisiting test system investment.
